When working with tables, you can select multiple items to apply an action. If you have grouped items by assigning them to floors, areas, labels, or directories, you can also filter your data accordingly.

Grouping and sorting items in a table

You can group items in a table according to certain criteria. The number of shown items stays the same. No items will be hidden.

  1. In the top right above the table, select the Group by button.

  2. The items will be grouped according to the criteria you chose.

    • The list of available criteria depends on the type of table.

Customizing columns

You can show or hide columns and change the order. Your customized columns are stored in your browser, so you only have to set it up once, and it will be remembered for the next time you visit the page.

To customize columns, follow these steps:

  1. In the top right corner of the table, select the cog wheel.

  2. To hide a column, deselect it.

  3. To rearrange the order, grab the column and move it to its new position.
